It’s All in the Eyes

Promote Healthy Vision Month in your practice this May

May is Healthy Vision Month—a great time to remind your patients about taking care of their eye health. Encourage them to schedule their annual eye exam and to make healthy vision a priority this month by implementing these fun ideas: 

Host a giveaway. Motivate your patients to schedule their annual eye exam, and if they do, they will be entered into a giveaway. Consider giving away items like a pair of frames or a gift card to a local restaurant!  

Share tips on blue light. Since devices are being used more frequently, it’s important to share tips on blue light and blue light lenses if they are interested. Remind patients to give their eyes a break throughout the day with “blink breaks” -- short videos with fun exercises for patients to do at their desks.  

Social media sunglasses campaign. After a patient receives their new sunglasses, ask them to share a photo on social media! Request that they tag your office and use a fun hashtag like #SunsOutShadesOn to encourage sunglasses usage.   

You can also communicate that your practice is committed to connecting vision to overall health by earning your American Diabetes Association badge through Premier Academy360™. Learn more here.

Get Social.
Help your patients learn! Download these myth buster graphics and use the recommended copy to engage through social media throughout this month. Or, better yet, customize the posts to fit your practice’s new styles and specials. Remember to add your practice phone number and city or neighborhood hashtags so patients can find you and schedule their annual eye exam!
